We need a new nightlight. We've had a couple of the projection ones and O loves them, but she broke her most recent one and honestly, it seemed really flimsy to begin with. Do any of you have a favorite, not super bright, nightlight? I've found that she needs the room quite dark, but gets scared if it's totally dark. Most nightlights I've found are way too bright for her. What's your favorite nightlight?

My 4.5 yo right now actually loves using her OK wake clock on the light mode in her bed. Bonus that she doesn’t bug us until it’s green We have an outlet in the room with a light activated led night light built in between the outlets but she claims it isn’t bright enough.

B loved the rotating projection ones that came with our white noise machines, but they kept breaking, so eventually we gave up. Right now both boys have this one: https://www.amazon.ca/DC-COMICS-JAS14536-Projectable-Night-Light/dp/B00UKIV9RA/ref=asc_df_B00UKIV9RA/?tag=googlemobshop-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=293021816845&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17956786243547635380&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9000758&hvtargid=pla-307707974115&psc=1
B also has this one: https://canabeebaby.com/products/style-8719033865747-a-little-lovely-little-brontosaurus-light-llbrgr32?variant=1281073512469&gclid=Cj0KCQiA-c_iBRChARIsAGCOpB3jGgVU2xK9yBx8rYfnKWX1gKN2fdtzF8c6YHlVe8Rfl2eOIYjdTJYaAkvdEALw_wcB and W has a similar one from Ikea, but they don’t really get used.

I had a really hard time finding ones that aren’t really bright too. Like they are nice and bright to illuminate hallways and bathrooms but so bright for their bedrooms. We have s kinderglo nightlight that’s similar to the Dino @erinbaderin: posted that you can set to different colors. The red is pretty dim but my 3 yo prefers the changing colors mode.

These are super simple, nothing fancy, but I like that they're not really bright and they're automatic, so they only come on when the light is off. https://www.amazon.com/DEWENWILS-Rotating-Automatic-Nightlight-Bathroom/dp/B075SS1SL8

We have one of those blue LED ones that sits in the outlet - the kind you'd usually put in a bathroom. It automatically turns on when the light goes off. We've moved it around a bit, because I thought it was too bright when it was alone on a wall, so at first i put it kind of behind a bookcase. Now it's plugged into the base of this lamp on top of the dresser https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075Z643G4/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1, with a tissue box or something to block it directly shining on DS's crib.
We chose it when we were going through sleep training. I love it because there's nothing for him to break and I don't have to turn it on or off.
FWIW, we also have the OK to wake clock, but we don't use it as a night light.

We use this popular turtle that projects stars on the ceiling.
It shuts off at some point after my daughter falls asleep. If she wakes and moves we have Nest fire alarms that light up as you walk under them in the dark. They are fantastic because if she walks all the way to my room (down a level) the path is lit the whole way from the fire alarms.
PS- I bought my fire alarms in a bulk package and have 1 extra I'm selling if anyone is interested in only 1.

We just bought these for my two DDs:
I love them because the brightness is adjustable and has an auto sensor. DD1 keeps it on the brightest setting and DD2 prefers it on it's lowest, haha.
